Wrong guy!~

Taken from Beatlefan magazine Sept/Oct 1996 issue:
George Harrison showed up at Ravi Shankar's 78th birthday concert July 2 (1996) at London's Barbican, Simon Rogers reports. Harrison arrived on foot just after 7 p.m. casually dressed and still sporting a beard and ponytail. At first he denied to fans who he was, saying, "You got the wrong guy!" However, he did sign two autographs. He sat in the front row and left only briefly for the interval. HE greeted members of the Shankar family with the traditional Indian greeting and appeared to enjoy the night, apart from fans hassling him for autographs after the show (he departed via a side entrance). Shanker spent the summer in London working on his upcoming album that Harrison is producing. Angel Records says the album is due out next spring.


  1. He is still cute to me even tho he is the "wrong guy" lolol (Nice try, George) *grins*

  2. I have had the privilege seeing the amazing Ravi Shankar several times in concert and I was at this 1996 concert at the Barbican. I saw George and Olivia Harrison enter the auditorium just before the concert started, and take their seats in the front row. George was wearing a cream, casual but smart suit. He looked great. The gig was absolutely fantastic. I was also fortunate enough to see George in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in Lonin 1992. Will never forget the experience. Brilliant gig!
